Static Shot

Maud Le Pladec

Creation 2020

Created on December 3rd, 2020 at the Opéra national de Lorraine, Nancy
With the dancers of the CCN—Ballet de Lorraine
Duration 30 min

“I envisage a very specific scenic device, situated between choreographic piece, scenic installation and cinematographic device. The dramaturgy of the piece, conceived as a block of bodies, images and sounds, will have no beginning, middle or end. Like a permanent climax, the group of dancers will together maintain this peak moment, energy always needing to be held at its zenith. So how to envision the questions of shared tension, ecstasy, and jouissance? And what about relaxation, breath, or loss? What if pleasure becomes a motive for tension? The piece’s dynamics – ranging from mezzo forte to fortississimo – will make this piece a permanent crescendo, inviting the spectators to participate in never-ending ecstasy.”
